Abstract : The purpose of this thesis is to conduct a comprehensive analysis of the Chief of Naval Education and Training Program Automated Tracking System (CPATS) and its impact at the operational level. The methodology used involved reviews of the history, implementation and applications of the system and its benefits and costs in terms of information and funding. The results indicate that CPATS has the potential for improving the quality and the timeliness of important management information. Much of this potential has already been realized at CNET headquarters and in liaison with training sponsors. The full potential has not yet been realized at the field level, and recommendations toward that end are made herein. The study also indicated that the initial costs of implementing CPATS will be recovered with less than a full year's operating cost savings. (Author)
